Samsung Galaxy A2 Core With Android Oreo (Go edition), Rivaling Xiaomi’s Redmi Go

Samsung Galaxy A2 Core and Redmi Go

Being an entry-level smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A2 Core runs Google’s lightweight OS, i.e. Android (Go edition). Google has crafted Android Go with light versions of its popular apps to match up to the limited hardware in such devices. Android (Go edition) branded apps include Google Maps Go, YouTube Go, Gmail Go, Files Go, and more. The OS is well suited to run operations seamlessly on the phone with up to 1GB of RAM. With Android (Go edition) on the software side, the Samsung Galaxy A2 Core works effectively without slackening.

Samsung’s Galaxy A2 Core is not the first Android (Go edition) phone on the market. Xiaomi recently launched its the Redmi Go smartphone with Android (Go edition). Priced at Rs 4,499, the Redmi Go makes up for a head-on competitor for the Galaxy A2 Core. One upper hand that the Redmi Go already has over the Galaxy A2 Core is that the former runs Android Pie (Go edition) while the latter settles for Android Oreo (Go edition). Of course, Samsung could get even by rolling out an update after the launch. Its stronger point comes in the form of storage as it has twice the internal storage than the Redmi Go.
